Electrolux sponsored Michelin star charity dinner raises over £100,000
Electrolux is delighted to announce that 'The Dining with the Stars' culinary extravaganza hosted by five Michelin star chefs, all of whom cooked at The Cube by Electrolux, raised over £100,000 for The Bobby Moore Fund. The fund was established by Stephanie Moore MBE, in partnership with Cancer Research UK, in 1993 in memory of Stephanie's late husband, legendary footballer Bobby Moore. Bobby sadly died from bowel cancer aged just 51. All money raised on the night is going towards the charity's pioneering research into the disease.
The idea for the event was born during a charity lunch in The Cube by Electrolux in September last year. Moved by Stephanie Moore's speech to her guests on bowel cancer and its devastating effects, Daniel Clifford of two Michelin star Midsummer House restaurant in Cambridge, offered to organise a charity dinner with many of his Michelin star chef friends in one of London's most stunning venues, Gibson Hall.
Headline sponsor Electrolux, which supplies 50% of Europe's Michelin star restaurants with kitchen appliances, coordinated the 'recruitment' of chefs who generously donated their time for free. Each chef cooked a course, while videos of the kitchen action let guests view how their food was being prepared and cooked!
Inevitably there was a football flavour to the event, which took place on 24th January, with England manager Roy Hodgson and West Ham Manager Sam Allardyce amongst the guests. The evening was hosted by Jayne Middlemiss, Celebrity Master Chef winner, and Matthew Wright from channel 5's The Wright Stuff.
